During the past three day’s simulation, our group performed not as well as the group expected. However, I took this opportunity to get to know myself better in the simulation.

I think I have been in stable and ideal situations too much and have absolutely no real life experience in response to changes. This simulation helped me to realise that I am so weak to face the changing environment. I feel stressed when several things come together especially the unexpected changes arrive. However, in this simulation, I found myself good at communicating and adopting something quickly....
